Sweden Active Holidays

With mountains, lakes, forests and an enviable coastline, Sweden's natural beauty and undeniable sense of space make this an ideal location for an active holiday.

Take advantage of the long summer days and hike, cycle and canoe in the lush forests and sparkling lakes of Sweden’s spectacular wilderness. There are countless opportunities for fishing and water-based activities are popular, whether it’s just a relaxed row on a lake or an exhilarating river rafting trip. With water temperatures often fairly warm in summer, a refreshing dip in a river or lake is a pleasant way to round off the day.

Discover one of Sweden’s lesser-explored regions on a multi-activity family break in Varmland. With its picturesque sweeping forests, fertile farmland and meandering rivers, this is the ideal destination for outdoor activities, while there’s also the opportunity to spot wildlife as varied as moose and eagles. Or head to the West Coast and explore this beautiful coastline.

Kayaking in Sweden

In winter, head up to the frozen north and get active in a snow-covered winter wonderland. Experience the great outdoors as you mush your own team of huskies along a winding trail through pristine forest enjoying the silence of the snow-laden forest, the only sound being the whoosh of the sled and panting of the dogs. Husky sledding options range from a two-hour excursion to a whole week in the wilderness.

Snowmobiles in Swedish Lapland

Alternatively, zip over frozen rivers and weave through forested surrounds on a snowmobile – whether you drive it yourself or ride pillion this will definitely bring colour to your cheeks and a smile to your face.
